King Edward VIII UK Maundy fantasies.

Does anybody know what the motif represents that appears at the top of the reverse design?

An M for Modern Manufactured Mischievous Maundy Money?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

A historical anomaly put right today!

In the 80th anniversary year of Edward's abdication, the King Edward VIII Pattern Maundy Set puts right this historical anomaly! Using the portrait that Edward himself had approved for use on British coinage, this set of four sterling silver patterns recreates the Maundy coins that never were - each following the precise measurements, design and silver content that have been part of Royal Maundy tradition for so many years.

Due to the technical complexities of creating Pattern pieces of such quality, just 499 of these set have been released.


Issued by: The London Mint Office  1 Carew St, Camberwell, London SE5 9DF, UK


If you think the name 'London Mint Office' is misleading, we would agree with you. It is a trade mark of 'The Crown Collections Limited', a coin marketing company.

Yes, M for Maundy - that could be it.  ;)
